Söderlund Guitars are hand-crafted, one-off acoustic and electric instruments built by John Söderlund, using unusual and toneful woods from Africa and around the world.
Many of my instruments are built in close consultation with my clients, allowing you to specify wood choices, scale length, hardware and details that are typically not customisable on factory-built instruments. I also build standard models that are in stock and available for purchase on the AVALABLE NOW page.
My building endeavours began eight years ago when a mountain biking accident led me to build a lap steel guitar to avoid the get around the damage done to my left wrist by the accident. As a colleague once quipped, there are very few people who manage to build only one guitar. Since that time, I have been building custom acoustic and electric guitars that perpetually push design, sonic and aesthetic boundaries in an obsessive quest for the ultimate guitar.
